Apparently, rent boy-lookalike actor Paul Rudd has, at age 52, been declared the “Sexiest Man Alive” by some magazine (details unnecessary).
Predictably, Teh Womyns are going all whiny, saying that no woman age 52 would be considered for the appellation in their gender (because men are pigs and ageism is eeevil etc. etc. etc. oh FFS #KillMeNow).
Really? I throw this open to my Loyal Readers, and ask them whether at least one of the following women (all of a similar vintage to Rudd) would fail to make their Top 5 Sexiest Women Alive, against the current crop of youngins (and all the pics are recent, no older than two years):
Salma Hayek (55)
Liz Hurley (55)
Nigella Lawson (56)
Caprice Bourret (50)
Nicole Kidman (54)
Monica Bellucci (57)
(I know, I know shuddup) Helena Bonham Carter (55)
And reaching back a few more years:
Michelle Pfeiffer (63)
Sela Ward (65)
Jennifer Tilly (63)
…and let’s not forget
Carole Vorderman (61)
Now I know that a lot of women of this vintage will have had some surgical restoration done — but guess what? Men do it, too — especially in show business, where most of these “contestants” are drawn from.
